After walking away from a horrific car accident, untouched, Jonas Bellingham Ayre, sells his business, divorces his wife and moves to the desert. It is there, in the desert searching for answers, that his shadow, steps out and becomes a taunting foil. Months pass ands still no answers. A burlap sack is thrown out from a passing train. Inside the sack, Jonas discovers and nurses back to health, Eva, an abused, near-dead woman, who in return, helps Jonas find redemption and a measure of peace as he becomes the moving force in reuniting Eva with her daughter.
A mix of magical realism/ surrealism/ pop culture/ alchemy and the cinema; the reader is ushered down, through, up and out of the rabbit hole that is the search and story of each human's life. Facing his shadow, arguing with his psychologist, wrestling with the harsh, sterile world of the desert, Jonas, leads the reader through the maze of his own particular life, asking of the reader, "So, was it, is it really any different for you? Yes? No? Yes? OK, then, how do you and I begin, go about sharing this, your, my particular place, world and time?"
